Surgeons in Brazil are attempting to save a two-year-old human "voodoo doll."
Doctors in Barreiras hope to remove 42 metal sewing needles -- some as long as two inches -- that were inserted into the boy's body, possibly as part of a black magic ritual.
The boy's doctor, Dr. Luiz Cesar Soltoski, told the Associated Press that the needles in his lungs cannot be removed either until his breathing improves. He added that some other needles can't be taken out because they are close to or inside organs.
The toddler's former stepfather was detained on Wednesday and confessed, Brazil’s Globo TV reports. He told police he inserted the needles with under the orders of two women.

I think this happens more than we want to know around the world.
What do think he wanted that he would do this to a baby?
Who believes in black magic?

There are mainstream religions that believe in God and also believe that certain medical treatments, medicines and therapies are evil. Refusing to allow a needed blood transfusion for an anemic child can also result in life threatening consequences. Some parents need to stop treating children as possessions- too bad most places give parents the ultimate authority when it comes to their kids. In America it's clear, kids do not vote.

Faith, beliefs and strict interpretation of religious dogma can, at times, convince even the most sensible individuals to participate in some questionable activities. Sad when people cross that line.
